Randolph County Master Plan

Randolph County Master Plan

has been taking place on the banks of the Eleven Point River in northwest Randolph County, Arkansas. Two early-nineteenth century log structures constructed in Arkansas’s territorial period have inspired a multidisciplinary historic preservation project undertaken by Black River Technical College.  Standing about a mile distant on opposite sides of the Eleven Point River on their original sites, the structures have been restored to a 1840s interpretive period by master craftsmen skilled in traditional trades.  The physical restoration was guided throughout by extensive historical, architectural, and archeological research. These silent educators have revealed much about the pioneering families arriving in the valley two centuries ago and inspired the project’s title – Researching Early Arkansas Cultural Heritage
